Veterinary Assistant

When I was little I was always changing what I wanted to do when I got older, but one thing stayed the same; I wanted to be surrounded by animals. I am currently in school to become a Vet Tech. I love all animals, big and small, and currently own two Terrier  mixes and 7 chickens!”
